First Aid/Cut Finger


While opening a package with a box cutter I sliced the thumb at the nuckle.  It has fully healed with little scarring at the wound site.  There is a bee like stinging along the entire scar.  If this is nerve damage will it possibly disappear with time?

Hi Kathy;

From your description, the stinging most likely is due to a combination of both the wound and small nerves healing. If you have no other signs of redness or infection, a warm wet compress may provide some relief.

Hope this helps
